Scholes hails Man Utd spirit shown for Norwich win

Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes hailed the spirit shown for victory at Norwich City.

The midfielder was outstanding again in the dramatic 2-1 win at Norwich, scoring the opening goal, and explained to MUTV afterwards that the players realised a point was insufficient in the title chase when Grant Holt levelled with seven minutes to go.

"There's no doubt we had to win today and we might not have done after them equalising," Scholes stated. "There was a chance we could lose a second goal as well but we needed to win. There's no point drawing games so we were throwing everyone forward going for that goal, as we will do in any game, and I'm sure we will do the same thing again. It doesn't always happen but, today, it did.

"Of course, three points instead of one is a big difference. That's what we're here to do now. We realise we may have to win every game to win the league but we're ready and prepared to do that. Hopefully, we can do it."
